approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Marti's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Marti Pellow comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Marti Pellow - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Marti Pellow" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Marti a little better. This page describes the disguise Pellow wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Pellow's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Marti Pellow wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Marti Pellow wants, Marti Pellow usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Marti wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Marti Pellow functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Marti Pellow usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Pellow approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Marti Pellow also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Pellow. When Marti Pellow commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Marti Pellow is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Marti Pellow as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Marti Pellow also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Marti Pellow seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Marti Pellow has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who he is. He is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Marti Pellow has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and he is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
Marti Pellow appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he had their best interest at heart. Because others view Pellow as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek his counsel.
The initial impression Pellow makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Marti thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Marti Pellow may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, he may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though he does not stand behind it as vigorously as he would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Marti Pellow tends to become scattered and nervous when he is out of balance. He needs clarity and order in his environment to be at his finest.
Marti Pellow loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Pellow is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy to him.
